An application for a permit is made at 803 Joliet Road, in the Community Development Department on the 1st floor of the Municipal Complex. The homeowner or the contractor can make the application. It is, however, the homeowner’s responsibility to see that a permit is secured and posted on the job site.

These plans are necessary to enable our Plan Examination to determine if the proposed structure or changes will meet all the safety requirements of the Code. In some instances it will be necessary to have the plans prepared by a licensed architect or engineer. The drawings should be in sufficient detail to show the dimensions of the project, kind and size of materials used, location of the property lines, and elevations.

An information packet covering all information and requirements needed in order to obtain a building permit is available in the Building Department.
